Shot this off IL-83 in Elmhurst, after an overnight conversion on Sunday the 5th.

Now that's what I'm talkin about!

Even if it were not rusty, I can tell that sign is really old. It's got the old "all suburbs" area code, and since when is towing only $105?

ETA: wait, I'm wrong. The old all 'burbs area code was 708, which still is the area code for Melrose Park. Why does it say 847? Weird.

It's stupid, but Melrose Park contains both 847 and 708 exchanges.

Hunh. I did not know that.

Nice.

I was all ready to carbon date it based on the reference to "Master Charge", which changed to Master Card in 1979, but the 847 area code didn't exist before 1996.
